Welcome to Dayton

Welcome to the Dayton region! As the regional chamber of commerce representing the voices of nearly 2,400 member businesses, the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce is happy you’re home.

Members are the backbone of our chamber. They make up the pool of resources from which ideas, manpower and financial support are drawn. Our chamber is one of the largest in the country and is one of only two chambers in Ohio to have a five-star rating from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Our chamber, staffed by 21 professionals, serves as the unified voice of local business in the political and legislative arenas, fighting vigorously for interests in our community and state. Our activities are based on sound business practices, services, ethics and integrity. Our members also benefit from cost savings programs, access to best practice information and valuable networking opportunities, all of which you can explore at DaytonChamber.org.

None of our services would be possible without the support of our distinguished leadership. Our board of trustees is comprised of up to 50 representatives of businesses large and small. Together, we are committed to creating business opportunities for a bright future.
